[scene opens with Captain Euchre speaking directly to the camera]
CAPTAIN EUCHRE: So, um, the problem is that this town ... sucks for supervillains. Um, it's really becoming a big thing. Um, I mean, when the best your base of operations has to offer is Librarian Marm, you start to wonder whether it's even worth it. I mean, loud talkers get kidnapped ...
[he rolls his eyes]
CAPTAIN EUCHRE: You don't hafta be a brainiac to figure that one out. Not that I have anything against the Brainiacs, they're good people. I uh, I went drinking with them the other day, which reminds me ... Uh, hold on.
[he pulls a tape recorder (disguised as a deck of cards) out of his utility belt]
CAPTAIN EUCHRE: [speaking into the recorder] "Phone Brainiacs, Re: My fifty bucks."
[he replays the message, then puts the recorder away]
CAPTAIN EUCHRE: Uh, so where was I? Right ... Loud talkers, kidnapped, Librarian Marm, right? Right! So we go down to the old forgotten sub-basements of the old forgotten library ... although, the good thing was we got to take the Ronin Rocket in the subway!
[he gives the thumbs up]
CAPTAIN EUCHRE: Uh, but anyway, we got down there and we burst in, and we said "The jig is up, Librarian Marm! Your overdue fines of justice are upon you!" ... Y'know, or something. Um, something better. And, um, and then she gave up! She said "Okay, you win. I give up, here you go." Uh, she says, "The kidnap victims are in the giant rotating book sign on Main Street." And, we were like "What?" I mean, she just gave up like that!
[cut to Captain Euchre looking dejected]
CAPTAIN EUCHRE: Y'know what those of us in the biz call the super-hero game? We call it Tights and Fights. Tights and Fights. "You on the Tights and Fights?" "Yeah, Tights and Fights!" Um, and if the super-villains don't fight back ... then we're just goofballs in underwear. Nobody wants that. So look, y'know, this town sucks for super-villains!
